Description

Friedrich Nietzsche haunts the modern world. His elusive writings with their characteristic combination of trenchant analysis of the modern predicament and suggestive but ambiguous proposals for dealing with it have fascinated generations of artists, scholars, critics, philosophers, and ordinary readers. Maudemarie Clark's highly original study gives a lucid and penetrating analytical account of all the central topics of Nietzsche's epistemology and metaphysics, including his views on truth and language, his perspectivism, and his doctrines of the will-to-power and the eternal recurrence. The Nietzsche who emerges from these pages is a subtle and sophisticated philosopher, whose highly articulated views are of continuing interest as contributions to a whole range of philosphical issues. This remarkable reading of Nietzsche will interest not only philosophers, but also readers in neighbouring disciplines such as literature and intellectual history.

Review quote

"...it is especially satisfying to come across Nietzsche scholarship that is not only challenging and original, but also offers a thoughtful, well argued, and meticulously researched account of Nietzsche's project. In other words, it is truly rewarding to come across a work like Clark's Nietzsche On Truth and Philosophy." International Philosophical Quarterly "This book is an important contribution to Anglo-American Nietzsche scholarship. It represents the most ambitious (and most successful) attempt to date to subject Nietzsche's philosophy to the rigorous analysis usually reserved for mainstream philosophers. Carefully argued and scrupulously researched, this impressive study demonstrates both the possiblity and the value of taking Nietzsche seriously as a thinker of the first rank. Maudemarie Clark has delivered a book that should stimulate Nietzsche scholarship for many years to come." Review of Metaphysics
